THE Premier League table ranked by all-time own goals is not good viewing for Everton fans.

The Toffees are one of six ever-present clubs since the top flight was rebranded ahead of the 1992-93 season, and they have turned the ball into their own net 48 times since then.

Of the other five ever-present sides, Tottenham have got the best record, only scoring 33 own goals to make it into 11th place on the all-time list.

Aston Villa, who played every Premier League season until relegation in 2016,  are second to Everton with 45 own goals – despite not being able to add to their tally for the last two-and-a-bit seasons.

Arsenal and Liverpool are then joined in joint-third place by Sunderland – who have played 11 fewer Premier League campaigns, but clearly have a penchant for putting the ball into their own net.

Somewhat impressively, their local rivals Newcastle – who have played 24 of the 27 Premier League seasons – are down in 13th place with only 29 own goals.

West London rivals Fulham and QPR both score own goals more often than most clubs.

The Cottagers have turned in a whopping 36 in just 14 seasons, while the Hoops make it to 19th place with 22 in only seven campaigns.

Leeds are the most experienced Premier League club – with 12 seasons – not to make the top 20, having only scored 14 own goals before their relegation in 2004.
